Courier New* - ThuraUy, JUM 30, ItM - Pi* El*v« Coronary Didn't Slow Birdie; He Still Gets as Angry as Ever CLEVELAND - (NBA) When the massive pain gripped George (Birdie) Tebbetts across his chest, he knew right away what it was. 'I'm afraid." he said, "this is the big daddy." Birdie, manager of the Cleveland Indians, suffered his heart attack a little more than two years ago, and outwardly he'd a changed man. The ballooned puffiness. some of which accrued when he was a baseball executive (vice president of the Milwaukee Braves for two years), has been replaced by a well - wrinkled neck. But the essential temperament remains. "I get just as mad as I ever did " reflected Birdie, "and get over it just as quick." Has-the heart attack changed 'his life in any way? "I stay within the rules. I don't run. I walk. I don't climb. I don't lift, push or pull. But I don't get as much exercise as I should because I don't get the chance as a manager. "Otherwise, I'm only doing what every normal person should do and doesn't do. If I had done what I should have done before, I wouldn't have had the heart attack." * .- * Birdie pondered the subject a moment. "I know of only one umpire who's had a heart attack, and one player. That fellow (Al) Bar lick over in the National League and that catcher with the Cardinals (Hal Smith).' ' Both of them, like Tebbetts, returned to active baseball though Smith's playing days were over and he's now a coach with the Pittsburgh Pirates. "General managers," continued Tebbetts, "apparently don't gel heart attacks." "Someone," said a writer, 'should tell that to Ralph Honk. He shortened his life expectancy when he became a manager again." Tebbetts smiled ironically. The subject had come up because the Cleveland Indians even this early in the season, are in the middle of a tension- including pennant race, not exactly the prescription for the calm, regulated life a man of 54 should be leading. * * * Tebbetts shrugged and tried to convey the impression nothing bothers him. "Each day is another day," he rationalized, "and the sun will shine whether you win or lose. So tljis is my business and my way of life. I think lam all right in it. "The most satisfaction I get out of b a s e b a 11 comes from watching a young fellow blossom out, develop, while I'm around — not because I'm responsible, but because I h a d something to do with the direction." He sounded exactly like a man mad as, ever, cfrcf ...cane get over- it CLUCK. Travs Strand 10, But Win ARLINGTON, Tex. (AP)—Arkansas left 10 men on base but still rolled to a 13-6 Texas League baseball victory over Dallas-Fort Worth here Wednesday night. The travelers collected 16 hits off .six Spurs' pitchers. Arkansas broke a 1-1 tie with five runs in the fourth inning and the Spurs played catchup the rest of the way, but couldn't 1 make it. Felix Roque picked up the victory, his fourth in seven decisions, in relief of starter Fred Wall. Pacing the Arkansas attack with three hits each were Larry Stubing and Floyd Wicker. Amarillo's manager Buddy Hancken clinched the Texas League All-Star team manager's job Wednesday night as his Sonies whipped El Paso 4-3. The All-Stars will play the Houston Astros July 7 at Arlington. Austin held on for a 9-8 verdict over Albuquerque. Eleven pitchers, four pinch ' hitters and 31 players participated in the Amarillo - El Paso : scramble. George Gerberman, second of five Amarillo hurlers, picked up his fourth victory in ' five decisions, partly thanks to i his own two-run single in the , fourth inning. Catcher John Hoffman singled !

But Tebbetts, during a 13- year playing career had three memorable brawls on the field with Vern Kennedy, Ben Chapman and George Vico (complicated by a $1,000 fine in the last encounter). and was once crowned on the head with a basket of rotten vegetables while sitting in the Detroit Tiger bullpen. So you knew he wasn't quite as placid as he tried to sound. Birdie recognized it, too. "Of course," he hastily added, "we all love to win, but it's that there's only one winner each year." In 10 years of major league managing (including a Manager of-the-Year award with Cincinnati in 195G) he has never piloted a team that finished higher than third. And that's why Birdie gets just ss mad as he ever did. White Levi's.Guys Watch the guys that set the pace—the crowd that MU the rtyles. You'll find they all live in slim, trim White Uvi's.

It is a unique corporation pro- ram consisting of 12 franchises n metropolitan centers with Anaheim, Calif., and its new stadium, the anly member so 'ar identified. Bruce Erlhof ef Santa Ana, 2alif., an attorney who was named executive vice-president of the corporation known as the Jnited States Football League, said that the $24 million in cash ind credits includes the price of rancliises along with the packaged amount to be spent "to get he players we want." * * * Leahy, who will serve as chairman of the board with iroad powers was emphatic at a news conference Wednesday hat "we are willing and adequately prepared to spend money for outstanding players — and can go to half a million dol- ars to get any one of them." The recently announced merger of the National Football league and American Football ^eague leading to one league by .970 touched off the USFL. Leahy and Werihof indicated hat if the two established eagues think they now have few iroblems in what was a spiral- ng big-money war of signings, hey might have another hought coming. * * * 'We will have a common ilayer draft based on a central scouting system as soon as the •egular intercollegiate football season is completed in Novem- ler and will be ready to start business in the fall of 1967," said Leahy. "I know our draft will be a couple of months before that of :he NFL and AFL, who have Frank Leahy Announces Another Pro Grid Loop announced theirs for January. But I surmise that they now will change their plans. "I think the AFL and NFL people are too sportsmindeU to try to circumvent our emergence as a new league. They have no reason to do so and I don't see how they could, any- way." The first six franchises will be announced July 20, the next three Aug. 15 and the last three Sept. 1. "Four or five applicants have either an NFL or AFL team in their cities," said Leahy. "Frankly, we are stag- Igering the announcement of'our [sites to spread out the publicity value.' 1 . Among cities in the rumor hopper are Chicago, Washington,.

Drysdale and Davidson think Manuel Santana of Spain will beat Ralston in Friday's championship final; ' Drysdale, the South African star who was defeated by Ralston in Wednesday's semifinals 6-8, 8-6, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, declared: "Santana is the fin est pelyairn the world today. "Ralston comes in so strongly at the net, it needs a player with a lob to get the better of him. I don't have the lob among my strokes, but Santana has it. That's why Ifiiink Santana will win." Davidson, an unseeded player from Australia who went down before Santana in the semis, 6-2, 4-6, 9-7, 3-6, 7-5, said: "I think Santana will win this title. He has no weakness for an opponent to concentrate on." Ralston too, has plenty of respect for Santana's game, but asserted, "I think I can win." Ralston fought back in fine style against Drysdale, after twice being a set in arrears. . The South African bamed the heavy schedue of the Wimbledon tournament, which he said had left him - tired before the semifinal began. Santana is the first European to reach the final since 1955, when Kurt Nielsen of Denmark lost to America's Tony Trabert.
